Twist and twirl with knits, not purls! Two unique methods make these socks both interesting and easy. Slipped stitch columns create the look of complex colorwork using only one color per round. And the Strong Heel method creates a gusset while working the leg, with no flap or picking up stitches, so purling is only required to turn the heel.

The Twirla Socks are worked top down with a roomy, comfortable Strong Heel. Contrasting slipped stitch designs enliven each quadrant of the leg, extending down to the sole and along the top of the foot.
